Who loves the dentist? We do…now! Mint Dental is very clean and beautiful inside with state-of-the-art equipment and little personalized touches throughout your visit. Dr. Nguyen is fantastic and her staff is exceptional. I have been to many dentists who mysteriously find many things to correct. My whole family has been to Mint Dental (including three children under 9 yrs old), and received incredible service – from the receptionists to the assistants. I cannot express my joy at finding this little gem. In fact, we moved last year and still drive 45 minutes to go to Mint Dental. Thank you so much for your continued dedication!

I Love MINT Dental! Every single one of their staff is very friendly and super accommodating. I’ve had a few fillings done as well as a crown replaced and all my procedures have gone smoothly with no issues…or pain afterward. I also have taken my 5-year-old son in and he loves getting his teeth cleaned especially when he gets a “no sugar bug” report. I am thankful to go to a dentist I can trust! I highly recommend MINT Dental.

This is my very first time giving reviews my whole life. Dr. Nguyen is an excellent and incredibly gentle dentist. She listens to her patients and does not recommend unnecessary dental procedures that many other dental providers do. (…). I have a great deal of respect for Dr. Nguyen and her staff, they’re all awesome. Mint dental office is also very beautiful and creates a relaxing ambiance. I highly recommend Mint Dental clinic.

Kimberly G. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) The dental office is so bright and clean, so I didn’t even feel like I was in a dentist office. The atmosphere is very welcoming and they play calming music. I hate going to the dentist in general, but Dr Kim Nguyen and her staff eased my nerves. The staff here is so friendly and knowledgeable. They explained everything that they were going to do, so I was not surprised and I knew exactly what to expect. Dr. Kim Nguyen is very knowledgeable, friendly, has an excellent bedside manner, and really takes the time to explain everything to you, which I really appreciate. I don’t think I will need to find another dentist again! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

S. J. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


This truly is as good as it gets. Dr. Nguyen and staff are friendly, funny, and caring. They made me feel relaxed and unafraid, and this is coming from someone who truly has a fear of the dentist. It’s state-of-the-art, clean, and calming. From the welcome to the payment at the end, everything was great. I would strongly recommend Mint Dental to anyone looking for a new Dentist. They are the best!

Gregg H. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) Mint Dental is AWESOME!  They are very up to date on equipment, procedures and the office is very clean.  I have been looking for a great dentist for some time now and I finally found one.  Dr. Kim is excellent!  I recommend everyone to give her a try.  They take most insurances, easy to locate and they explain everything they do while cleaning your teeth and or breaking down for a better understanding of your bill.  Once again terrific experience and very friendly staff.

Toan N. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


A friend referred me here first time after a bad accident that required some major dental work.  I must say, I am thoroughly impressed with Dr. Nguyen and her friendly staff.  Most people get nervous about dental work, including me, but she guided me through every step of the way and made me feel very at ease. The work was painless and my teeth are as good as new! Definitely taking the family here (…).

Sapporo R. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


The dentist is really nice. she did a good job! Gentle! I didn’t feel hurt. I have three fill up! She fixed my front teeth. It looks nice after all. The receptionist girls are nice and good customer service. I would recommend to everyone.

Katie H. from Georgetown, TX (Source: Yelp)


This is not something I ever thought I’d say about a dentist, but I actually look forward to coming here! The office is beautiful and all the staff are super friendly. It’s a smaller practice so you get the benefit of them being on time. My latest cleaning I was in and out in 20 minutes. After trying another dentist in the area, I’m glad I came to Mint! Every interaction with them has been positive! I also love that the dentist does the actual cleaning because she’s super gentle and speedy!

Tarah M. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son and I have been here a few times and they are very nice. My son was very scared of the dentist and they made him feel comfortable. My last dentist’s office had me sitting in the chair for half an hour to an hour even for cleanings so I like that this office gets you back right away and starts working on you. Thank you!

(…) I rarely give 5 stars to health providers, but this office had it all together. Xray work and cleaning on the first visit were very thorough and professionally done. Everything seemed above board and honest with insurance, etc. Office is very clean and they didn’t try to hustle for extra work that I didn’t need. I’m a professional and I appreciate professionals like Mint Dental.

Amanda L. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was having severe tooth pain and after calling several other dentists, I was finally able to get an appointment at Mint Dental OC. Everyone I encountered was great! I’m terrified of the dentist and haven’t gone in ages (since I was a child) and no one was condescending and I felt that my comfort was their first priority. Britney (gal at the front desk) was able to squeeze me in very quickly, just so I would have the whole day to get this handled. They very quickly figured out the problem I was having and needed to refer me to an oral surgeon. They even called around to several to find someone to take me the same day.  
I highly recommend Dr Kim and her staff!

Everyone who works at Mint Dental OC is positive and professional. Our whole family has been going there now for about two years, and we love their staff! They clearly explain everything to you, and there are never any surprises. Would highly recommend!

Heena P. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Kim Nguyen and her staff were amazing! They were extremely helpful, thorough and the whole office is very minty clean and welcoming. My teeth felt very clean after the cleaning and despite my last few dentists missing a concerning condition with one of my teeth, Dr. Nguyen picked up on it astutely.
Definitely going back and taking the family along!

I’ve been going to a Mint Dental for over five years. I love the whole office. It’s clean and decorated so nice. Even the music is nice. The dentist is so caring and loving. I wouldn’t change dentists for the world.

Dave Maxey (Source: Facebook)


Hands down, the best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist’s office. Dr. Nguyen and staff were very welcoming, friendly and caring. They’ve given me every reason to be confident that my decision to choose this office was the right one. I actually look forward to my next visit. How many people can say that about going to the dentist?

Great dental office! They have the friendliest staff and dentists! I was referred by a friend after having terrible experiences at another dental office. Needless to say, I hated dentists after that. But after coming to Mint Dental, it has restored my faith that dentists don’t have to be a scary experience and can actually be quite pleasant. I love this place and would highly recommend them to anyone!

Lynn L. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Mint dental OC is the best dental office in Yorba Linda.
Dr. Nguyen and all her staff have always been very professional, kind, gentle and make you feel like family. It’s where everybody knows your name. The office is very nice and clean with all the modern technology needed for superior professionalism. The patients have 100% confidence in her if she says something needs to be done or should be done. Dr. Nguyen is my favorite dentist (…).

Sophia K. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) Dr. Nguyen and her staff were super friendly, helpful, and accomodating. I came in for a new patient cleaning. And, I will admit, I am a BIG chicken when it comes to the dentist. Dr. Nguyen was extremely gentle and patient with me. The drill part of the cleaning freaks me out the most. Every time I raised my hand due to sensitivity, Dr. Nguyen immediately stopped. All my sensitive areas, she ended up cleaning by hand and not with the drill. That, alone, really put me at ease (…).

Tori Z. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t been to the dentist in years. I was afraid and in pain. I broke down and called Mint and was so pleased with the first initial consolation. They were gentle and friendly. All staff is so nice. The set up of the office is so cute. They have great music. I have since gone back 3 times since my first appointment and every time has been just as great as the last time. I would highly recommend for anyone scared to go to the dentist.

We used to live in Placentia and when Mint Dental opened up across the parking lot of where we went to the gym (L A Fitness) my husband decided to try it out. Then I decided to go too because I tired of him ranting and raving about the atmosphere and the care he received. I LOVE Mint Dental OC and when we moved down to Mission Viejo 2 years ago, we changed all of our doctors except for Kim ( Mint Dental). I don’t mind at all driving the hour to have Mint Dental take care of my teeth and oh my what a bunch of “happy faces” that work there and such wonderful care we get. That is one Dentist that I will not drop and find someone closer. I have great confidence in this place. Been going there for about 4 years (since they opened). Try it, you won’t go anyplace else.

Tom A. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an exceptional visit today from the receptionist to the dentist to the behind the counter associates. I would highly recommend this dentist office to my friends and family. The receptionist was very friendly and knowledgeable. I hadn’t seen any dentist in over 15 years but sitting with the dentist she was very good at explaining the whole process that would follow the next few weeks. At the end of my visit, everyone was very friendly. I love this place.

Melanie W. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


My friend recommended this dental office to me and I’m so glad I decided to give it a try! The office staff and Dr. Nguyen are very friendly, professional and informative. The office atmosphere is modern and clean. It’s easy to make an appointment. I even had to adjust a follow-up appointment and they were very accommodating. I’ve had 3 visits here so far and it’s been nothing but good.

Tim G. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Nguyen is very talented and professional. The experience my wife and I received under her care was awesome.  I am into pain-free dental work and that’s what she delivers with a very gentle touch. Dr Kim Nguyen is on the young side for a dentist so she will only get better with time and she is really good now. Go to Mint Dental you will love it and all the staff.

Chris Sy-Santos (Source: Google)


(…) Dr Nguyen came in and we had a very pleasant conversation about our kids and life in general. Great bedside manner! I spent more time chatting than she did going through my teeth, but that’s expected since I’m quite particular in caring for my teeth. Her hygienist, Taylor, came in to do the cleaning and flossing. This is the part most of us dread—but Taylor made it as painless as possible. She was very cognizant about my comfort throughout the cleaning, making sure the suction tube was doing its job and taking care to be gentle around my gums and making sure she rinsed repeatedly to get all the grittiness from the fluoride out. As a reflex built up over the years, I found myself to be bracing for a slip-up or poke somewhere within my mouth, but that never quite happened. Taylor was very communicative about what she was about to do and where in my mouth she was moving to next. I couldn’t have asked for a smoother dental visit and would recommend Mint Dental OC to anyone who asks.

Great Dentist. The entire team is wonderful. The reception staff is always happy to see us, the hygienists are kind, gentle and fun! The dentist is smart, quick and great to answer any questions. My Fiance who did not like the Dentist, now is ok with it. Highly recommend Mint Dental to everyone who will listen!

Doctor Kim has been my dentist since 2014 and I absolutely adore her! Beautiful, clean, uplifting environment. She’s super gentle and keeps you sane during your visits. Her entire staff is super friendly and informative to any of your questions. I love the new equipment that she has at her practice. It makes me feel safe and in good hands each and every time I come in for my cleanings. I strongly suggest that you come in and have Kim take care of your smile!

Jesus Ruiz (Source: Google)


Everybody was very nice, caring: the front desk, doctor Kim is very caring. Taylor, is amazing. Gentle, great patience, great hands. She takes the time to suggest things to the patient. She is very knowledgeable.

I had a hard time picking a new dentist after moving to Brea. A friend suggested Mint Dental, and I couldn’t be happier. Everyone is so kind and I feel appreciated every time I go. I had braces and a lot of teeth pulled as a child and have never liked going to the dentist. I have never had a bad experience with Mint Dental and would even try to keep going here if I moved away.

This has to be one of the best dental office experiences I’ve ever had!!! Dr. Nguyen and her staff are the consummate professionals. I’ve been a patient for one year and I will be a patient as long as they will have me!!! I highly recommend this dental office

Nicole Orseenee (Source: Facebook)


After 20 years with the same dentist, I decided to find a dentist closer to home. My experience there today was fantastic. Dr. Nguyen and her staff were super friendly and thorough. The office appeared very clean with modern decor. Both Dr. Nguyen and her hygenist were both gentle and walked me through every step. I’m a little baffled why I didn’t try to find a new dentist sooner.

Melissa Gartner (Source: Facebook)


Love MINT Dental. Every single one of their staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They are so good at answering all your questions and walking you through procedures. I used to fear the dentist…I can officially say I no longer do!

Brandon C. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had somewhat of an emergency (at least to me) when one of my tooth started hurting real bad.  I can’t say I was surprised by it because I had been experiencing some sensitivity and slight pain for some time now, especially when I ate anything sweet. My regular dentist wasn’t able to see me soon enough so I decided to give Mint Dental a call.  They were able to schedule me right away, which was great news for me.  Turns out I had a cavity, shocker I know.   Dr. Nguyen was really great. She showed me what the problem was and explained how she was going to fix it.  It was pretty fast and easy.  I came in a couple of weeks later for a more thorough exam and also had my cleaning done.
The office was very modern and suits my taste very well. All of the equipment seemed really high tech.  Dr. Nguyen was not one of those old school dentists.  She was young and energetic and was very attentive. Her staff seemed really nice and friendly too! I might be making a permanent switch.

Sylvia C. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Mint Dental is a gem!  The team is friendly, organized, and professional.  I have been going to this office since it first opened more than four years ago.  Dr. Kim Nguyen is the leader of this wonderful team.  The place is always immaculate and the decor very calming.  I have always got the feeling that caring for your teeth was their main objective and being honest and caring about the cost of that care was next.  I have gone to many dentists in my senior citizen’s life and it is most pleasing to be able to say that this is the best I have experienced.
